Last Call For Candlelight

For 74 years, tickets to Staples High School’s Candlelight Concert have gone faster than you can say “Sing We Noel.”

For this year’s extra-special 75th anniversary performances, they’re going even quicker.

Just a few remain for the 3 shows: Friday, December 18 (8 p.m.) and Saturday, December 19 (2 p.m. and 8 p.m.).

Candlelight logoTickets are available by mail. They must be postmarked by Wednesday, December 11. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope and the ticket order form (click here). Send to: Candlelight Tickets, Staples High School, 70 North Avenue, Westport, CT 06880.

And … tickets are almost gone for the special alumni gala (Saturday, December 19, 5-7 p.m., Westport Inn). Those tickets include a reserved seat to the concert, hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, an exhibit of photos and posters since the 1950s, 75th Candlelight logowear, and a 4-CD set of recordings of concerts from the ’50s to the present.

All proceeds from the alumni gala help celebrate Staples High School music. To purchase tickets, click here

    75 Years? Wow!
    Whenever the Candlelight Concert is mentioned, I have to pull out my old programs, all beautifully printed, and smile ear to ear with happiness!

    Simple, sweet, nostalgia.

  2. Has anyone received their tickets yet?

    I got the sheet music for “Sing We Noel” but our choir director at church wouldn’t use it because she thought it was too antiquated. Darn!

    • So I guess that rules out nearly every other piece of music in church too, huh?

        I guess I meant she thought the language was too antiquated. Whatever the reason, she won’t do it. But I have kept the music. Unfortunately I am unable to come to the 75th anniversary so I won’t be able to sing it there.

  4. Is there a way to reserve the CD set without attending?
